The 9400 GT has served me fine, unlike what people in this forum have told me. I am not looking for a better graphics card, I simply am asking about overclocking.

If the card has active cooling it should be safe so long as you overclock properly and incrementally. Just make sure to monitor your temps and check for artifacts during stress tests. I don't really see the point of overclocking a 9400GT other than doing it just to do it. Just don't expect anything too drastic.
